Here is a interesting story regarding the growth of the headphone and IEM market. I’m not surprised that the IEM is expected to grow. After reading the story it is clear that much of the growth will be on the sub-$300 market. It will also be tied into the fashion industry as accessories. Earlier this year I saw an interview with the CEO of V-Moda and one of the interesting comments was the driving force for reducing the size of the XS was to make the case appear as a small purse. They even came out with a gold chain strap.
